Margaret Day In Melbourne
A truly lovely lady friend of mine came to Melbounre from Sydney a day early from her family and invested some time playing with the gang, being Lucy, Glenda and myself. Margaret who has all the patience in the world was teaching us some techniques with solder and links etc. We set forth to make some Bezels and create a little bit from Stephanie's Lee's book which I have mentioned on here before. This time like always we decided to put our own little twist to it. We had fun cutting the Bezels 'oh my what a stressful time that was' there is a technique to it, I do have to say. LOL turn the gadget not the pipe.....LOL... we know Margaret, I can see her laughing now. Did I mention how great and patient she was, I am sure we put her through hell and she handled it with such grace. I am such a stress monger at times....LOL. Well we Bezeled, soldered, fluxed, no I am not swearing....LOL and we soldered some more. My twist is I wanted to fill my bezel with watch parts and resin, this is the finished result. We also made these little bird nests soldered into the metal and they are still on the table being worked on but not much longer and I will post a picture of them too.
